Application Process Temporarily Closed

UPDATE 09/01/21- Oklahoma Community Cares Partners has temporarily closed all applications for rent and utility assistance for six weeks beginning September 1, 2021. Applications will reopen on October 15, 2021. During that time, CCP will process and pay as many applications already submitted as possible. Applicants will be notified if their application qualifies for assistance. CCP will not be responding to individual application status questions as that will only slow down the process. What you can do now:

  1. Talk to your Landlord and/or utility company to let them know you applied for assistance.
  2. Show up at Court (and call Legal Aid) if you get served with an Eviction Summons that has a Court date and time. You will be evicted if you do NOT show up at Court.
  3. Call 211 if you need help with counseling.
  4. Check the resources page on okccp.org for a list of shelters and housing alternatives, if needed.

Apply online at https://okcommunitycares.org/ or call 2-1-1
